“After having both knees replaces and completing formal physical therapy, I felt the need for more assistance transitioning to my pre-surgical active lifestyle. The Bridge Program has provided me that step. Josh is improving my confidence in what these new knees can do! My balance, agility, strength, and stamina are all improved beyond expectations. I would recommend the Bridge Program to anyone looking to make a transition back to an active lifestyle post joint replacement surgery.
When completing physical therapy after tearing my ACL, I went straight into Beacon’s Bridge program. I am extremely grateful for the program. Josh was very easygoing and played a big part in determining my weak points, as well as putting workouts together to help me improve on them. I finished the Bridge program with more confidence about my recovery.
After Surgery, I spent quite a bit of time in physical therapy. Despite my efforts and hard work, I still didn’t feel like I was back to where I was pre-surgery. The Bridge Program did just that. After following Josh’s program, I felt like I was ready to get back on the court.
There certainly are applications of the Bridge program for competitive or recreational athletes, but the general public can reap benefits as well. I started Bridge after completing treatment for a bulged disk, and 6 week later, I noticed substantial improvement in stability, balance, and strength. Josh’s coaching approach is cautious to avoid injury, but deliberate and challenging to ensure week-over-week progress. I’m glad I chose Bridge, and I have encouraged friends and family to do the same.
